Is Microdermabrasion Safe for the Skin?

Posted in Beauti-Med Makeovers

Microdermabrasion is now one of the most common methods to reduce the signs of aging on the skin.


The technique has long been harnessed throughout the cosmetic marketplace, but many potential patients still question whether microdermabrasion is safe for their skin. In this article, we’ll analyze the treatment in greater detail and provide comprehensive information on its safety.

A Simple Process Offered Through a Professional

Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive method of improving the skin’s appearance. The technique involves using microcrystals to remove the outer layer of the skin, thereby revealing the younger, healthier skin underneath.

One of the leading benefits of microdermabrasion is how gentle the process is on the skin. It’s designed to leave no visible marks while offering an exceptional treatment solution for conditions such as acne.

No Side Effects

Unlike many of the other leading facial treatments, microdermabrasion has been crafted to ensure there are no side effects for the patient.

The crystals used within the process are non-allergenic, decreasing the chances of a bad reaction on the skin. This means the treatment is the ideal choice for those whose skin might be sensitive to the chemicals used within other treatments. And because microdermabrasion is designed to take place over the course of several treatments, the process is methodical to limit adverse reactions.

Can be Completed Over the Course of Several Lunch Hours

The new trend in cosmetic medicine is treatments that can be completed by professionals over a patient’s lunch hour. And microdermabrasion follows this evolving trend. The treatment can be completed over the course of several one-hour sessions with a specialist, and the downtime required after the treatment is completed is minimal.

This means patients can quickly get back to their regular working schedules after the treatment is completed, assuring another advantage for microdermabrasion over harsher, more in-depth cosmetic procedures.

No Pain During the Procedure

Because of the specially designed crystals used within the microdermabrasion process, patients will feel no pain during their procedure. While some patients have experienced a skin warming sensation, this sensation has been likened to the feeling of receiving a massage. After the procedure has been completed, patients may see some redness in their face for the first few days of the recovery process. It’s one of the safest ways to improve the look of facial skin!
